Reject pushed directives (eg. routes) via client config

Post by petiepooo » Tue Oct 26, 2010 10:15 am

It would be nice to be able to reject specific routes from the client side that are pushed by the server. Say 5 routes are pushed but one of them is redundant or specifies the network the client is already on. For example, a
reject "route 10.1.20.0 255.255.255.0"
directive line in the client config to counteract the server's corresponding push directive.

I know the same thing can be done with CCDs, but sometimes the client user doesn't have control over the VPN setup. One could also call a script before route injection which could filter out the offending route, but that's not so easy on Windows clients.

i agree... it would also be nice if we could reject "redirect-gateway"
